We went to Bondir to celebrate a family member's birthday, and had a table for six on a Saturday night. The service was wonderful and the only thing better was the food. The food was not only terrific, but was a really interesting prix fixe menu. An extraordinary experience which everyone greatly enjoyed.

My husband and I went for our birthday dinner and our first date night since our baby was born. We very much value farm to table type restaurants. Cute, small and intimate restaurant - definitely date worthy. Excellent service though there were only 3 couples there on a weekday night so that might be a contributor. Menu was varied and... More

I went to Bondir on the recommendation of a friend who had seen the restaurant but not actually dined there. I should have been more cautious. Part of the pleasure of a fine meal is to feel you have paid for what you have received. A stiff bill can be swallowed if the food is of a high standard. I... More

We were very excited about enjoying a nice night out in Boston. Bondir looked to be a hole in the wall and we were excited by the farm to table charm it offered. Unfortunately, this was hands down the worst meal we've ever had. We felt like we had been scammed to be honest. I agree with the reviewer who... More

I've had dinner here twice and it is a great place to go. they have a tasting menu with delicious food and a quiet atmosphere where you can have a real conversation. it was empty when we went, and it really deserves more attention. Note, I have no connection to Bondir except as a customer.

The only words I can use to describe this uber billed restaurant is "shockingly disappointed". It must have been different earlier. There was a single prix fix meal with an asian vegetarian slant. No real carbohydrates, made for anorexics or movie stars eating vegan.The music was loud and overbearing, The wait staff haughty and robotic. I ate only half of... More

April 22, 2016: Bondir Restaurant, Cambridge, Ma Style but no substance This highly rated restaurant is located in a neighborhood of Cambridge; I repeat the word ‘neighborhood,’ and the management told me that they had only four spaces allotted to customers, I had difficulty parking, so be prepared. Bonder is a small cafe-like and intimate restaurant with at least 10... More

We came here for an Easter lunch and we loved it as soon as we walked in the door. It's a cozy place with very friendly staff and an immediately welcoming atmosphere. We had a three course fixed menu and were delighted to see that there were vegetarian options, which is sometimes hard to come by. The food was light... More

Just enough tables in a small space to feel intimate without feeling crowded. Very personal food, hyper-local – is it crazy to call it molecular meets Euell Gibbons? There aren't any dishes to recommend, because the menu changes all the time, and you don't get much choice is what to order. There are some misses here, but the chef is... More

The setting is pretty intimate, but you don't feel cramped at all. The food was expensive but really spectacular. Set menu makes it very easy and we were suggested a very nice wine. Make a reservation ahead of time by calling!

Bondir Restaurant is located in a residential neighborhood in the center of Cambridge which is known for it's sense of community and pride in it's diversity. A neighborhood filled with murals, parks, and public gardens. Our cuisine is based on a simple premise: The ingredients we use are a story about the people who produce them. We acquire ingredients from all over the world, but most come from within a short drive of the restaurant. The most expressive ingredients are the freshest, coming from the ocean or the field, directly to our door. Relationships - cultivated over the years through time spent with foragers, fishermen, farmers, ranchers - color the daily menu. Our service is the most important aspect of our job. We want to create a personalized evening for each guest, therefore, we have a small staff.
